Losses Force SD&AE to Quit Passenger Service
UNDER authority granted by the Public Utilities Commission of California, through passenger train service over the San Diego and Arizona Eastern Railway Co. between San Diego and Calexico was discontinued Jan. 12.
Freight service over the line, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Southern Pacific Company, will not be affected.
The Utilities Commission ruled that abandonment of passenger service was justified, citing an annual loss of $439,000 by the company in passenger operations.
